The right to breathe. The right to clean water. The right to wholesome food.

Air, water, food – these are the sources of life. Without them, we die. And in most nations – more than 180 nations, in fact – citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life.

Film and Book

For the last four years, the Green Interview team has been working on a set of films and a book about environmental rights, all based in the Green Interviews themselves. The details are at www.GreenRights.com – and we’re almost done. The last components are a full-length documentary film, GreenRights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, and a companion book.The film will be fabulous; if you liked Defenders of the Dawn, you’re going to love Green Rights.

The book is Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth. It contains a 13,000-word essay (which has drawn rave reviews from advance readers) plus carefully-edited interviews with 15 amazing lawyers from nine countries. It too will be finished by the end of June, and will be published by TheGreenInterview.com. You can pre-order it from Silver Donald Cameron’s website, here.

Promotion

Silver Donald Cameron and his wife, Marjorie Simmins both have new books this fall. They’ll be promoting the books and screening the film in October when they make their way across the country in a motorhome, with many stops along the way. There will be preview screenings in Antigonish and Halifax, NS, but the grand premiere will take place October 5 in Ottawa. The tour will stop at at several universities in southern Ontario, details TBA, before moving on to Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina and Calgary en route to Vancouver, arriving late October and staying for the winter.

 The David Suzuki Foundation is planning to sponsor and help organize some events in BC over the winter, and the film will probably also be presented at the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, held in February in Eugene, OR, which has been called “a Woodstock of public interest environmental lawyers.”

New Green Interview web site

The long-term benefit from all this activity will be, we hope, a great increase in subscriptions to www.TheGreenInterview.com which will allow us not only to continue, but to grow. Anticipating a lot more traffic, our web wizards have been rebuilding the site, making it much cleaner, more dynamic, and far more friendly for both for our visitors and for our own team. If you’re reading this, the site is up and running — and we’d love to hear what you think of it.

Stay tuned! It’s going to be a busy and interesting summer, and a very exciting fall.

What I see in my community was that we as humans that wanted to survive had no right. If you want to keep a salmon feedlot out of your migration route, you can’t just say, ‘I don’t want it. I don’t want them to kill off all the fish.’ You have to come at them with an economic argument. You have to make something up that nobody really knows how to do.
